Relationships end. People change. But that’s in real life, not in the movies. As cliché as they can be, the best romantic comedies make viewers believe that everlasting love is real – at least until the credits roll. Unfortunately, there are a lot of couples in romantic comedies who wouldn't stay together if they existed in real life. Doomed rom-com relationships are built on tenuous ground; their films often feature gaping plot holes and awful behavior that's glossed over in the name of moving the plot along. If you want to make your romance work, take a look at these bad movie relationships and learn what not to do.

Horrible couples in movies don’t just populate the worst romantic comedies. Some of them appear in truly delightful films. It’s just that they act like monsters. They lie. They cheat. They refuse to be held accountable for their actions, and they learn nothing from their zany journeys. Don’t feel sad for these rom-com couples who probably broke up – it was for the best.
